Do we prevent somebody being hurt by superstition or faith by rejecting and challenging those things? 

Is it mistaken to support organised religion in membership or donations?

If people do good because they are human, not because God prompts them then is it right to risk giving God any credit when they alone own their good?

THERE IS NO GOD

Religion says that God made us as free beings who could work for him or against him so sin is our fault and not his. They say we cannot freely do good unless we have the power to freely do evil. There cannot be a God for people should not suffer when there is no free choice. Evil is a mistake caused by sickness and they admit that and still they say that we are free which is very vindictive. You cannot freely do evil if it is an illness so there is no free choice. Evil is something to be hated while the perpetrator is to be pitied.
  
We will not bend the knee before the being that regards sickness as punishable and pretends that his brutality is justified. We refuse to join in with people who condone the evil in God and who slander themselves and everybody else with their accusations that all have free will and that we have chosen the evil that befalls us not God. They have to admit they cannot prove free will so what they are doing in making this monstrous accusation is seriously wrong especially when there is no proof for God and therefore no proof that we should be accused of all that to get him off the hook for he might be unreal. For real people to take the blame for the actions of a being that might not be real or loving is truly truly perverse and misanthropic.

I am most sure I exist. I refuse to degrade myself to take the blame for God for that is putting a being whose existence I am not as sure of as my own before my own. When God cannot be put first there is no real point in believing in him or even liking him. If God existed it would be best for me to know him for he is good and he would prove his existence to me just for the sake of fairness. I donít have the proof so there is no God. To say that God exists is to say, ďIf I am wrong to ask humanity to take the blame for God, I don't care. I want to believe." That is a very serious insult to all who suffer.
 
Creation could have come from nothing. In this case, it just popped out of nothing uncaused. This seems illogical.
 
Creation could have been made by God out of nothing. This is more illogical. Something popping out of nothing is one thing. But making something out of nothing is an additional problem. It means that creation popped out of nothing and was made out of it at the same time.
 
It is really saying, "God exists and creation popped out of nothing." So it is simpler to settle for accepting that creation just is a brute fact that just popped out of nothing.
 
The big bang happened. It will reverse. Then another big bang may happen. This may have happened countless times. It could be extremely unlikely chance that we have a universe like this that we appeared in which to the untrained eye looks designed. If there are countless big bangs this would be possible.

Even if there is a God, I should not believe in God.
